An after dark joyride drives a small town fish worker to risk everything.
For 30-something Finnie, the daily grind of working in a fish factory and providing for his family has numbed him to the point where he can no longer be emotionally available to his wife and kids. Having taken on too much responsibility too soon, the pain of remembering himself as an arrogant, carefree teen who spent his nights racing cars through the streets is just too great. He borrows his son Kid’s car for an after dark joyride, one that might lead to a new understanding of himself — or might cost him everything.
A bard entertainments production in co-production with barry crerar, the film has been funded by the BFI and Creative Scotland with National Lottery funding and BBC Films. Fabien Westerhoff of Film Constellation is handling worldwide sales.
